What is Red Light Therapy?

Today, we’re diving into its remarkable effects on wound healing, skin rejuvenation, joint health, sleep quality, and even mood enhancement. Get ready for a dose of positivity and excitement! When it comes to wound healing and tissue repair, red light therapy works its magic in a unique way. Unlike other laser treatments that intentionally damage the skin to promote healing, red light therapy stimulates regenerative processes directly. By increasing cellular proliferation, migration, and adhesion, it supports the natural healing abilities of our skin. It’s like a gentle boost for your body’s repair mechanisms! But wait, there’s more! Red light therapy is also gaining popularity for its anti-aging effects on the skin. A study published in Photomedicine and Laser Surgery found that red light therapy promotes anti-aging skin rejuvenation and increases collagen density, improving complexion, reducing wrinkles, and fine lines. It’s like a time-traveling treatment for your skin! And guess what? Red light therapy doesn’t stop at skincare. It may also help reverse hair loss and stimulate hair growth. Just like its wound-healing properties, it works wonders for follicle rejuvenation.

Earthing to Reduce Inflammation!

Have you heard about earthing? It’s a super cool practice where you connect to the earth’s surface to receive its free electrons. These electrons can neutralize free radicals, reduce inflammation, and even accelerate aging! Plus, earthing can enhance circulation, carrying nutrients throughout the body while carrying out toxins and waste. Did you know that a lack of electrons in tissues can lead to inflammation and trigger diseases? Earthing can help prevent this by providing free electrons to resolve chronic inflammation and serve as natural antioxidants. And the best part? Earthing can help reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep, increase energy levels, and even reduce pain. If you prefer to ground yourself indoors, you can use earthing mats, shoes, bands, beds, or sheets. They all claim to reduce exposure to EMFs and help you connect with the earth’s electrons. But most experts agree that grounding yourself outdoors by walking barefoot on the earth is the best and easiest way to practice earthing. Plus, being outside in nature has its own set of health benefits that you can’t get while being inside. So get outside, kick off your shoes, and feel the earth beneath your feet! When working at my desk, I

Health Benefits of Copper

17 WAYS COPPER HEALS THE GUT Hippocrates said that ‘all disease begins in the gut’. It seems he was on to something: new evidence shows that optimal health throughout the whole body starts in the gut. 1. Copper is an astringent, meaning it tightens pores. So it fixes leaky gut. 2. Copper helps make collagen, strengthening skin. The gut lining is our “inside skin”. 3. Copper stops bleeding, increasing clotting factors, as well as increasing red blood cells, which are also clotting factors themselves. 4. Copper boosts hormone production, specifically DHEA, which is converted to testosterone. Testosterone is known for building muscle, which it does through speeding healing. 5. Copper is known as a “wound healer” along with zinc and Vitamin C, other wound healers. All three are needed for collagen production. 6. Copper detoxes many toxins that slow wound healing and destroy all kinds of metabolic processes. 7. Copper increases blood circulation by clearing out calcium and cholesterol both of which hinder circulation. Copper increases circulation in many other ways, such as improving the strength of blood vessels through increased collagen, and helping the body to grow new capillaries as needed. With a better blood supply, the gut heals faster.

Health Benefits of Coconut Oil

Sometimes coconut oil gets a bad rap, and there’s a misconception that coconut oil is bad for you. In actuality, it’s one of the healthiest oils that you can consume. Here are the top seven reasons to consider using coconut oil as an alternative to other common cooking oils. 1. Coconut oil doesn’t store as fat in your body. Unlike many other common oils, like soy (vegetable) and corn, coconut oil won’t make you fat. Coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCT), an easy fuel for the body to burn without turning to fat. Most other cooking oils and fats contain long-chain triglycerides (LCT). LCTs are typically stored as fat. Since coconut oil is an MCT, it is more easily absorbed and converted to energy quickly. People in the tropics have relied on coconuts for centuries as a traditional staple in their diet. They consume large amounts of coconut oil every day and instead of getting fatter, it helps them stay healthy, lean, and trim. When they switch from coconut oil to our modern oils, they develop obesity and the health problems our modern society faces. 2. Coconut oil increases your metabolism. Not only does coconut oil convert to energy more

8 Foods to Ease Arthritis Pain

Do aches and pains have you out of joint? Concerns culminating in the withdrawal of several selective Cox-2 inhibitors, like Vioxx, have many people with arthritis turning to the supplement aisle in search of relief. Could diet and exercise provide more reliable solutions? Here’s a roundup of recent research into those foods that help support healthy joints: * Pineapple: Bromelain is an enzyme that can help ease joint pain and relieve muscle soreness. Scientists at the Dole Nutrition Institute found that fresh or frozen pineapple has as much, if not more, bromelain activity than supplements. Pineapples also provide an excellent source of vitamin C, which helps promote collagen formation and improve iron absorption, and manganese, which supports metabolism and bone density. * Cherries: a top source of anthocyanins that reduce inflammation and may protect against gout (an inflammatory form of arthritis). One study found that cherry consumption lowered blood levels of uric acid, which can accumulate in joints, causing pain. * Broccoli: Cruciferous veggies like broccoli contain sulforaphane, which triggers the body’s antioxidant defenses. New research suggests this process may help block the effects of Cox-2 enzymes on inflammation. Broccoli sprouts are one of the most potent sources of these compounds, which you’ll

The 10,000 Step Study

Taken a walk today? If not, you may want to pay close attention to this.

The Secret to Success

I came across a pretty cool study I wanted to share with you because it’s really important this time of year. The study was published in the Journal of Health Communication. In it, researchers tracked 704 people in an online weight-loss program. A little over half (54%) chose to work with an accountability buddy. And guess what? → They lost more weight & inches from their belly than those who followed the same program without a buddy! The more messages they got from their partners (both accepting & challenging!), the better their results. Bottom Line: Accountability is SO IMPORTANT. It gives you that little extra bit of motivation to keep working. It’s also why we make accountability a key part of our coaching program. I’m telling you this right now because we are heading into a very hectic time of the year — which makes accountability even MORE important. We’re here to help you stay on track with accountability, support, and so much more. Want to see if we can help you fast-track your weight loss goals? Let’s set up a time to talk.

How to Make Being Healthy Fun!

Ready for some fun? We can get SO SERIOUS about our health. And yes, it can be serious business. But it also can be FUN. That’s one thing I work on with my clients – enjoying the process by mixing things up or adding a novelty factor every once in a while. To switch things up, I came up with a few ways to gamify your health and have more FUN with it! Let’s get into it: 1) Use an app to track your DAILY goal! Set a goal for your sleep, meditation, # of steps, or any other habit you’re building. Shoot for a goal that’s 1) achievable but 2) requires a little effort. And here’s the fun part: Get a streak going … and keep it going! See how many days in a row you can do it! I have a friend who has been on a streak for more than 736 DAYS! Incredible! You better believe that she isn’t going to let anything get in her way now. 2) Walk to the Eiffel Tower (or anywhere else in the world). Think of a landmark you’ve always wanted to visit. Then look up online how far away it is from your
